ABRSM has no membership requirement. Simply follow the steps below.

  1. Check local exam dates, fees and entry deadlines. Entries are only accepted during the listed entry periods.

  2. For each entry, prepare:

     

    - TWO COMPLETED COPIES of the entry form (a photocopy may be used as a second copy)

     

    - Your exam fee payment

     

    - If entering for Practical Grades 6, 7 or 8, proof of the prerequisite

     

    - If entering for ARSM, proof of the ARSM prerequisite

     

    Practical and Theory entries must be made separately, each with the material above.

  3. Send a complete entry package by mail to your local representative or contact.
